Cool picture. I can't imagine why it charms me so.
I've decided to change some names. I've already changed 'Angry Friend ' to 'Cherry Bomb'. I'm changing 'Jose' to 'Eladio', because it sounds more lyrical. 'Cancer Friend' is doing so well that I don't want to think of her by that name. But I'm having a hard time coming up with a good one for her. It'll come to me. My sweet mother-in-law will be 'MiL', simply because 'Mother-in-Law' is too hard for me to type. And my personal brain care specialist is, of course, Dr. Feel-Good-Enough, the no-frills psychiatrist. (That's the way I like my Docs. They should just do what I want and then leave well enough alone. Imagine having to go to a psychiatrist who wants to pry into your personal life!)
Rich Simon will be called "Rich Simon', since he's got his own blog and uses his own name. (Check out Rich's blog today. It's dizzying. http://scorpionbowl.blogspot.com/ . If we set up a list of links, he should be on it. Also 'Geoffrey Chaucer Hath a Blog'. and Arts & Letters Daily and SciTechDaily)
